fstab help!

I have a device /dev/hdc4, I want to mount it to /mnt/all with anyone being able to write to it or read it. The current config that I have is

/dev/hdc4 /mnt/all auto defaults,user,rw,umask=000 0 0

this doesn't work. I can't write as my normal user. What is wierd is even when I go into terminal and login as SU I'll type chmod -R 777 /mnt/all/Files/ (FILE NAME) to change permissions and it won't change the permissions in it. Any advice would be highly appreciated. I have an external as well that I am having the same problem with so I think that I'll be able to figure it out if this problem is fixed. My external is /dev/sda1 mounted to /media/external, fstab is as followed

/dev/sda1 /media/external auto uid=500,gid=500,umask=000,auto,user,rw 0 0

people are giving me different advice so I've tried a lot of things and nothing is working. Thanks
